just for info, afaik in germany all dsl lines face the same problem as
well: t-online, alice, etc. all use dsl modems + line splitter, seldom
with any pppoe functionality built-in. 

so it is not an unlikely case, but it seems like most european broadband
providers use this kind of dial-in equipment.
